Submitted my Hub for Publication and it Came Back as a Duplicate?

    I spent two days writing a hub and, apparently, it's a duplicate? Is this a bug? I hadn't copy and pasted anything but quotes from other articles (which I thought I properly cited). Were they to blame? Just a little peeved that I put all this work in for Hubpages to tell me I'm copying someone else's work. Is this a bug?

      We need a link. But, yes, if your hub has a lot of quotes which appear elsewhere, then it will be flagged as duplicate content. I'm not sure of the acceptable ratio of original text to quotes, but you may have exeeded it.

        I agree Bev.

      what you could do is copy part of your hub, paste at any checking plagiarism site to check for any duplicate words or content
